If you’re not subscribed to Apple Music, then Siri might refuse to answer your questions.
Tom Conrad, co-creator of Pandora, recently pointed out on Twitter that Siri won’t look up the top songs in the U.S. if the user is not paying for Apple Music.
The Daily News attempted asking Siri for the most popular song in the U.S. today, but the intelligent voice assistant didn’t give an appropriate answer since the user does not have an Apple Music subscription.
“Sorry Alejandro, I can’t look up the music charts for you. You don’t seem to be subscribed to Apple Music,” Siri said.
If a user is paying for Apple Music and asks Siri for the most popular song, then the user will be redirected to the Apple Music app.
Siri will also refuse to answer music questions pertaining to a specific year. For example, it won’t give an answer to, “what was the most popular song in 1983?” However, if you ask it to pull up the most popular movies in the U.S. today, it will redirect users to iTunes.
The Daily News reached out to Apple for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
